NBA Vegas Futures Odds & Finals Predictions to Win 2018-19 Championship

The odds to win the NBA Finals have recently been updated and are listed below.  The Golden State Warriors are heavy favorites to repeat as champions this year.  As far as the odds are concerned, if anyone is going to knock the Warriors from the top in the West, it would be the Rockets or perhaps the Lakers, despite a lackluster start from both teams.  Golden State’s most likely opponent looks to be the Raptors out of the East, with the Celtics and Bucks expected to be their top contenders.

The latest Finals odds from 5Dimes are listed below.  The change column represents how much a team’s odds have improved or decreased since our last update (10/26).  Our Power Index represents the approximate points a team would be favored by against an average NBA team.  For example, the Warriors (13.5) versus the Celtics (4.9) on a neutral court should have an approximate line of the Warriors -8.5.  This is of course only a starting point for the line, but it should give you a good place to start when estimating matchup odds.  Finally, our NBA Finals column is the probability each team will win the NBA Finals as implied by their current market odds.
